PULSE: Music of the People

What do we learn from folk music? We learn the rhythms, the language, and the pulse of a culture. Folk music is about participation and preservation - it tethers us to the roots of our culture. This recital explores the attraction and incorporation of folk music by classical composers and musicians into their own genre, a trend that goes far back in classical music history and is still widely popular today.  Featuring the musical stylings of:

Golijov - Tenebrae
Villa-Lobos - String Quartet No. 5
Dvorak - String Quartet No. 9
Visconti - Black Bend
